After signing his first professional contract at Ewood Park in October 2017, the striker made his senior debut 12 months later and made 18 appearances in all.

Butterworth told the club’s website: “It feels good to finally be able to cross the line. It’s something I’ve wanted for two weeks and I’m really happy to do it.

“It was a good experience playing in the Blackburn first team. I tried to break through there and tried to play as many games as possible, but I think for the next stage of my career I had to go somewhere and play a few games.

“I immediately liked this club because of the way they play. The manager (Stephen Crainey) likes the way I play because I like creating and scoring goals.

“All I want to do now is repay his faith by showing what I can do.”
